CAF WINS TRAM PROJECT FOR THE CITY OF ST. ETIENNE, FRANCE

The amount of the contract is €42m, and the first vehicles are scheduled for delivery in the spring of 2016.

 

The trams will be 100% low floor with a total length of 33 metres across 5 modules. These vehicles belong to the Urbos Tram family but are adapted to the special characteristics of the Saint-Etienne network: metric gauge track and 2.15 m wide carbody. Moreover, the new units boast new features compared to the units currently in operation, as they are bi-directional and have doors on the ends for added operating flexibility.

 

The new vehicles combine modern aesthetics with state-of-the-art equipment and maximum accessibility without comprising comfort, performance and ease of operation and maintenance. They provide sound evidence of CAF's capacity to cater for the specific requirements of each customer.

 

This project builds on the latest projects of the Company in France, including highlights like the supply of trams for the city of Nantes and Besançon, already in revenue service, as well as the recently contract awarded to CAF for the rehabilitation of 35 Lyon Metro trains, for an amount close to 25 million euros. Thus, the long list of countries where CAF supplies light railway vehicle projects keeps growing with Germany, Brazil, United States, Australia, Sweden and Taiwan.
